MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - We’re setting up for 36 hours of on-and-off downpours to finish out the week.

Clouds are already begun moving-in and the rain is shortly behind. Expect showers to arrive late Wednesday evening, turning more widespread into Thursday morning. Nearly all of Thursday will feature rounds of downpours and isolated storms, turning heavy at times through the afternoon.

Temperatures will have a tough time climbing, with most of the day spend in the 40s. The one exception will be right along the Grand Strand where warmer weather may attempt to move on-shore. This could briefly push spots along the coast to around 60° before quickly dropping again Thursday evening.

More rain is expected overnight Thursday and into Friday morning. It remains widespread until the early afternoon where we gradually begin to dry out through Friday evening. Most spots can expect to see between 2″ and 3″ of rain through Friday.

Sunny skies will return this weekend but don’t expect much warmth. Afternoon highs are stuck in the upper 40s both Saturday and Sunday with mornings starting off around the freezing mark.

Sunny and cooler weekend ahead
